    Portuguese Pilots in UK for Lynx Mk95A

    Marinha Portuguesa, November 23, 2020 - Four military pilots from the Portuguese Navy are currently undergoing qualification on the upgraded Lynx Mk95A helicopter in the United Kingdom.

    This period will run for five weeks, corresponding to about 50 hours of flight and includes training and qualification in the areas of contact and instrument flight, operation of sensors and aircraft equipment.

    At the end, acceptance tests will be carried out on the first modernized helicopter, which will be transported to Portugal, with the objective of carrying out integration flights on the naval aircraft on Portuguese soil in early 2021.

    This qualifying period results of the current contract between Leonardo Helicopters and the Portuguese Navy for the modernization of the five helicopters Lynx MK95, which has been running since 2016 and is in its final phase.

    The five Lynx Mk95 helicopters are receiving new avionics and LHTEC CTS800-4N engines
